We still don't know why a Trump server has mysterious connections to a Russian bank, despite a DOJ indictment. In September, the Justice Department brought an indictment against a cybersecurity lawyer with connections to the Democratic Party, accusing him of lying to the FBI in 2016 when he peddled a story about how the Trump Organization had hidden connections with a Russian bank.
The charges came from an investigation led by John Durham, who former Attorney General Bill Barr had appointed to investigate the origins of the FBI investigation into former President Donald Trump's ties to Russia.
As president, Trump hoped that Durham would "go after" former FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and others he blamed for the Mueller probe. For vague reasons, he also wanted Durham to investigate former President Barack Obama and now-President Joe Biden, his opponent in the 2020 presidential election. Barr appointed Durham as special counsel, ensuring that the investigation would continue after Biden took office.
The recent indictment gave oxygen to Trump supporters who saw the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt," but legal experts are skeptical about the charges.
The indictment also fails to resolve one of the lingering mysteries from the 2016 election, first laid out in a Slate article: Why was there a digital connection between a Trump Organization server and a Russian bank in the first place?
Mysterious connections between 'mail1.trump-email.com' and a Russian bank
In 2016, cybersecurity researchers at Georgia Tech and the information security firms Neustar and Zetalytics made an unusual finding.
They found that between May and July 2016, a server belonging to the Trump Organization had been communicating almost exclusively with a server belonging to the medical company Spectrum Health, as well as two servers belonging to Alfa Bank, the largest financial institution in Russia.
The researchers - who The New York Times has identified as Zetalytic chief data scientist April Lorenzen and Georgia Tech computer scientists Manos Antonakakis and David Dagon - made their findings by studying DNS (Domain Name System) logs, which records device connections over the internet. The logs included a server with the name "mail1.trump-email.com," which had been registered to the Trump Organization.

Devil= Divider2021-10-03 21:32:21
MAGA supporters have raised $2 million for a jailed Marine. But the officer says he hates how Trump has divided the US.. We have few comment writers like booby, political observer and few writers who kiss trump's ....s and divide us. Divider = devil
government whistleblower claims he and other Trump administration officials were pressured to manipulate intelligence reports under the former president. CBS News Homeland Security and Justice reporter Nicole Sganga sat down with the whistleblower and joins CBSN with more.
As an avid reader of the comments, I must say I enjoy reading comments. Most of them are entertaining as well as informative. Some may be a bit sarcastic. Anyway, for the most part, it sheds light to the pertaining topic. But, what bothers me is that some won't take time to write. They rush into sending, resulting in giving the wrong message. Another problem is the improper usage of punctuations which also changes the focus of the message. Even with a fake profile name, one can tell whether it is written by male or female. In general women take more time before sending for publication. Maybe they are afraid of making mistakes. This fear is good, resulting in less mistakes. On the other hand, men generally send it sooner and wait for someone else to point out their mistakes. This is not good. Let me give you an example. The other day, a man wrote a comment under the profile "DEVIL= DIVIDER". This definitely is written by a man. Can you find the clue? I did. In his little comment he had two periods in one month (I mean in between two sentences). If you didn't notice it , read it again . The nonsense he expressed is another matter. You don't expect better writing from an intellectually challenged individual. So Mr. DEVIL, be careful next time. People are watching :)

Jamie Dimon said his daughter wrote him a 'long, elegant, nasty letter' after he joined Trump's business council. He referenced MLK to explain why he did it. After JPMorgan Chase CEO Jaime Dimon joined one of the Trump administration's business councils, his daughter sent him a letter including the line "How could you, Dad?"
The CEO and chairman told "Axios on HBO" in an interview that he replied to her by saying Martin Luther King would have kept going to the meetings with Donald Trump to fight.
"You know I love my daughters, but after I went into Trump's business council, one wrote me a long, elegant, nasty letter you know about 'How could you, Dad?'" he said. "And I wrote her back saying you got everything right except for the conclusion, but Martin Luther King would be going seeing President Trump every time to fight, fight for his people." people with minimum decency, education and love for others won't support trump. Some malayalees still worship him They regard their own children & wives as slaves. The uneducated unculterd coolies.
CRIMINAL CHARGES2021-10-05 10:51:48
rump At ‘Substantial Risk’ Of Being Charged With ‘Multiple Crimes’ Over Georgia Election Meddling: rump is facing potential indictment on multiple crimes over his efforts to get Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to overturn the results of the 2020 election, according to a group of legal experts.
As the wide-range investigation by law enforcement officials in Georgia continues, a group of seven legal experts published an analysis for the Brookings Institute on Monday arguing that Trump’s actions in Georgia leave him “at substantial risk of possible state charges predicated on multiple crimes.”
The officials then outlined exactly what Trump could potentially be charged with.
“These charges potentially include: criminal solicitation to commit election fraud; intentional interference with performance of election duties; conspiracy to commit election fraud; criminal solicitation; and state RICO violations,” they write. “Our conclusion is based entirely on publicly available reporting and evidence, including the recording of Trump’s call to Raffensperger.”
During the infamous phone call, trump asked Raffensperger if he could “find” the 11,779 votes that he would need to overtake President Joe Biden’s lead in the state.
The legal experts say that this is relevant because it ties into trump’s broader scheme to overturn the election results in other key swing states won by Biden, and shows a corrupt intent to simply manipulate voting totals to remain in power.
This, they argue, is why prosecutors should give serious consideration to charging rump criminally. what will booby & john k will do when their hero is in jail?
“Georgia state prosecutors certainly have the power to investigate and charge a former president for willfully reaching into their jurisdiction to allegedly transgress their laws and interfere with their officials on a matter of utmost state interest: the administration of Georgia’s election procedures,” they write.

Joe Biden Crime Family, Hunter Biden joined his father aboard Air Force Two in December of 2013 on a flight to China. Ten days later, he secured over $1 billion in financing from the state-run Bank of China for a newly launched private equity firm he co-founded. Companies owned by Frank Biden, Joe Biden’s youngest brother, received millions of dollars in taxpayer loans related to real estate development in the Caribbean during Joe Biden’s vice presidency. James Biden, the younger brother of Joe Biden, worked as executive vice president of HillStone International, a firm that received $1.5 billion in government contracts during the Obama administrations, including a contract to build 100,000 homes in Iraq as part of an international development project. Joe Biden’s sister Valerie Biden, who previously managed Joe Biden’s senatorial campaigns in Delaware, financially benefited from donations to her brother’s later presidential campaigns. In 2008, she sent $2.5 million to her political communications firm from Citizens for Biden and Biden for President Inc. Joe Biden assisted his daughter Ashley Biden by helping her husband, Howard Krein, launch healthcare company Start Up Health in 2011. He arranged a meeting with former President Barack Obama in the Oval Office weeks after the company’s founding.

Nearly one year after the Hunter Biden laptop story sparked a political firestorm, Politico confirmed the material first reported by the New York Post in the final weeks of the presidential election. Politico Playbook published reporting from correspondent Ben Schreckinger's new book "The Bidens," which delved into the emails that surfaced in the explosive reporting that was ultimately suppressed by Big Tech. "A person who had independent access to Hunter Biden’s emails confirmed he did receive a 2015 email from a Ukrainian businessman thanking him for the chance to meet Joe Biden. The same goes for a 2017 email in which a proposed equity breakdown of a venture with Chinese energy executives includes the line, ‘10 held by H for the big guy?’" the Playbook wrote. "Emails released by a Swedish government agency also match emails in the leaked cache, and two people who corresponded with Hunter Biden confirmed emails from the cache were genuine."

KING OF DEBT> MAFIA?2021-10-07 13:31:58
The King of Debt a Maffia?.looming court battle in Scotland could see the government there forced into an unprecedented investigation of how former President Donald Trump came to purchase a lavish golf course all in cash.
A campaign group suspicious of the source of Trump's wealth hopes to prompt a so-called unexplained wealth order - known informally as a "McMafia" investigation - into the purchase.
Nick Flynn, legal director of campaign group Avaaz, told Insider there was a "towering cloud of suspicion" over Trump's $60 million purchase of Turnberry, the storied resort near Glasgow, in 2014.
The former president purchased the resort using cash, despite having spent his career until then relying on borrowed funds to build his real-estate empire as the self-styled "king of debt."
The source of the money is a secret. The only hint so far - strenuously denied - is an unverified claim that the money came from Russia.
James Dodson - a famed golf correspondent - claimed that Eric Trump, a director at Turnberry and a second resort in Aberdeenshire, told him in 2014 that the Trump Organization had "all the funding we need out of Russia."
When the story was widely circulated in 2017, Eric Trump denied Dodson's claim, describing it as "completely fabricated." There has been no other explanation offered for the unusual all-cash purchase. Is the money coming from Russia? booby or sam or john might know
Election Overturn2021-10-07 14:05:41
Senate Judiciary Releases Damning Report Detailing Trump’s Plot To Overturn Election Through DOJ Intervention. Department of Justice (DOJ) officials reportedly dismantled a plot by former President Donald Trump to use the DOJ to help him overturned the 2020 election results by having loyalists within the department concoct bogus investigations into unfounded claims of election fraud, according to a new report released by the US Senate Judiciary Commitee on Thrusday.
The report, based on documents, emails and testimony from then-acting Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen, then-acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue and Byung Pak, who was the U.S. Attorney in Atlanta details how DOJ officials fought off Trump’s and his allies push to pressure the DOJ into overturning his election loss in the final days of his administration. The panel also released testimony from Rosen, Donoghue and Pak.”
According to the report, “former acting Civil Division Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Clark pushed Rosen and Donoghue to help Trump overturn the election after Clark met with Trump.”
Clark proposed that he and the other officials send letters to Georgia officials falsely claiming that the DOJ had identified “significant concerns” that could impact the election, it adds.
He also reportedly came up with the idea of saying that he spoke with a witness who claimed he saw trucks moving ballots to a location where they would be shredded.
Donoghue and Rosen rejected Clark’s recommendation to send the letter, according to the report, which added that Trump considered replacing Rosen with Clark, but was warned that all the assistant attorneys general would resign if that happened.
In addition, the report said that former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows asked Rosen to initiate election fraud investigations in at least four categories of election fraud, including already discredited claims in Georgia.
Meadows also reportedly asked Rosen to investigate “Italygate,” which held that the CIA and Italian IT contractor used military satellites to manipulate voting machines, but he refused to investigate the theory.
And investigators found that Trump’s allies who participated in the “Stop the Steal” movement pressured the DOJ, the report said.
Specifically, it noted that Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.), who led the objection to counting Pennsylvania’s 10 electoral votes on Jan. 6, tried to pressure Donoghue into investigating claims about voter fraud in Pennsylvania.
The report further confirmed that Pak left his role as U.S. attorney because Trump wanted him fired due to the FBI’s failure to find mass election fraud in Atlanta.
After a Jan. 3 meeting in the Oval Office, Donoghue called Pak that evening to tell him he should resign, according to the report.
In a statement, Senate Judiciary Chairman Durbin (D-Ill.) said the report “shows the American people just how close we came to a constitutional crisis.”

Joe Biden’s brother-in-law, John Owens, reached out to Hunter Biden in 2014 for help in securing a business license to expand his telemedicine company in China, saying it needed to be "secured very quickly," according to emails. The art dealer representing Hunter Biden has longstanding ties to China and said in 2015 that he wanted to be the art world's "lead guy in China. Georges Berges, who is representing Hunter Biden as he ventures into the art world, has talked about his business dealings in China in the past, but his reported ties could pose an ethics issue as he sells Biden's art to anonymous buyers.
